This method creates a selection set that contains the underlying class' invalid objects.
A selection set must be passed to the first parameter, indicating that a subset of the class' objects should be evaluated. Unlike the query filter parameter of the Validate method, this parameter requires a valid selection set, and passing a null value will cause the method to fail.
The Workspace parameter indicates where the selection set is to be created. In most cases, a null value can be used, indicating that the class' workspace be used. If necessary, a scratch workspace may also be used.
